Born on the island of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Roger Koch is one of the last of a race called the “Dutch Burghers of Ceylon” who cease to exist with the passing of his generation.
Now Australian, he has been an itinerant traveler, having worked extensively in the Hotel and Tourism Industry in both cosmopolitan centers such as London, San Francisco, Sydney, Singapore and Bangkok - to more exotic locations such as Vanuatu, Palau, Thailand and Borneo. As opening Chief Operating Officer, he later served on the Board of Sutera Harbour – a mega resort complex in Borneo and was also Special Advisor to the Minister of Tourism in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. He is presently living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
His ambiguous appearance and adaptable personality has afforded him insider/local status in most of the countries he has visited, giving him a unique perspective on the effects of culture, heritage and race and the biases and prejudices associated.
